The front-end engineering and design (FEED) tender was launched in early September. In this FEED competition, three entities will be selected to compete with three designs and the successful feed contractor will then execute the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract next year. Companies that have been invited to bid include: China Petroleum Construction Company of China / Technip of France, Larsen & Toubro of India, Mcdermott of US, National Petroleum Construction Company of Abu Dhabi, and Saipem of Italy. (September 2018)
  • 3 groups have been selected for a design and build competition for the new oil production facilities worth almost $1bn. The competing groups include: China Petroleum Construction Company / TechnipFMC, Mcdermott, National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) / Petrofac. From the three FEED proposals submitted by above companies, one will be chosen and taken on to the EPC phase. The selection is expected to be made by July, 2019. (February 2019)

The project aims to produce about 45,000 barrels per day of oil and up to 27 million cubic ft per day of gas from the Belbazem block, while maintaining reservoir pressure support with water injection. The scope of work is likely to involve several wellhead platforms, subsea pipelines, subsea cables and other associated offshore facilities.
